The district 6 People’s Committee in HCMC said starting November 1 to 14, the district will officially close temporary market which was built near Binh Tay Market last year and open new Binh Tay market.
Under influence of a cold front and a low pressure trough, HCMC and other provinces in the southern region of Vietnam have been cloudy and rainy, reported National Hydro Meteorological Forecasting Center.
Chairman of HCMC People’s Committee Nguyen Thanh Phong yesterday committed to fully recording opinions from people in Thu Thiem new urban area, District 2, to handle violations and ensure the legitimate rights of the people.
HCMC has asked the Government to advance VND1 trillion from the state budget for underfinanced Ben Thanh-Suoi Tien metro project and long waited for approval. Meantime the project itself now has an available capital of the same amount but complicated administrative procedures have prevented it from using the funds.
